  • Locate and reference the Azure Architecture Center.
  • Describe various patterns pulled from the Cloud Design Patterns.

Module 2: Building Azure IaaS-Based Server Applications (ADSK)This module identifies workloads that are ideally deployed using Infrastructure-as-a-Service services in Azure. The module focuses on the VM Scale Sets and Virtual Machine services in Azure and how to best deploy workloads to these services using best practices and features such as Availability Sets.Lab : Building Azure IaaS-Based Server Applications.

After completing this module, students will be able to:

  • Design an availability set for one or more virtual machines.
  • Describe the differences between fault and update domains.
  • Author a VM Scale Set ARM template.
  • Join a virtualized machine to a domain either in Azure or on a hybrid network.

Module 3: Networking Azure Application ComponentsThis module describes the various networking and connectivity options available for solutions deployed on Azure. The module explores connectivity options ranging from ad-hoc connections to long-term hybrid connectivity scenarios. The module also discusses some of the performance and security concerns related to balancing workloads across multiple compute instances, connecting on-premise infrastructure to the cloud and creating gateways for on-premise data.Lab : Deploying Network Infrastructure for Use in Azure Solutions
